Facebook files for $5 billion IPO

Posted on

That Facebook is some kind of something. Boy, this Facebook is all anybody’s ever talking about. Aren’t you sick and tired of hearing about how brilliant that Facebook is? Then now’s a good time to become a hermit — according to ABC News, the epoch-defining social networking site has officially filed papers to begin selling stock in May. Facebook’s offering will be five multiplujillion, nine impossibidillion, seven fantasticatrillion dollars, or roughly $5 billion in non-cartoon money. Financial analysts are already predicting that this will be the IPO of the year/decade/millennium, and also that it will be vastly overrated. (Presumably, somewhere the Winklevoss twins are angrily shaking a cocktail shaker.)
